The Buck Knives plant just moved to the area a couple years back so it is relatively new to the area even though their name preceeds them in many years. Buck Knives are high quality and they have an outstanding reputation. I have several buck knives and each one is as great as the other.
Buck Knives is in a huge building out behind the outlet malls and there are tours available on a daily basis. It's rather interesting to see what goe into making these knives and just how much work it entails.
There is also a gift shop that is open to the public daily as well and you can get some great deals and decent prices on knives, hats, shirts, gifts and more.
